The word ‘avenue’ probably conjures up an image of tall trees and elegant houses.

Ravellaan will be the principal road serving the new Ravel residential area.
By 2025, the place where AFC footballers are currently still kicking a ball around on Plot A will be the site of an eye-catching new development, with around 70 family homes in the mid-market sector. Starting on 26 March 2021, parties can submit tenders on TenderNed. This marks the first step in the realisation of the Ravel residential district
